Meet the Wildlife
"Banff National Park is home to 53 species of mammals. This incredible diversity of wildlife is a reflection of the wide range of habitats found in the park due to variations in elevation, climate, food sources and plants.
While you may think it is easier to see animals in the summer, in fact, the winter is when animals move into the valley floor and there are fewer tourists around.
Bow Valley Parkway is a lesser traveled road with great chances to see mule deer, wolves, coyote, bighorn sheep, and elk. This road is often closed in the winter due to conditions or to give the animals a break. "
